Nick Aldis has a new match for the upcoming NWA 74th Anniversary pay-per-view.
The NWA has announced that Aldis will face Flip Gordon on Night 2 of NWA 74.
Aldis was originally scheduled to face NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Trevor Murdoch after winning a Fatal 4 Way to become the new #1 contender in July, but days later he was pulled and replaced by NWA World Television Champion Tyrus. NWA President Billy Corgan accused Aldis of playing backstage politics, which was believed to be a mix of real-life and storyline issues.
It’s unclear why Aldis is facing Gordon at the pay-per-view, and while he re-tweeted the NWA’s announcement on the match, he has not commented on the bout as of this writing.
On a related note, the official promotional poster for NWA 74 has been revealed. You can see that poster under the card seen below.
The NWA 74th Anniversary pay-per-view will air live on Saturday, August 27 and Sunday, August 28 from Chase’s Khorassan Ballroom in St. Louis, Missouri. The event will air live on pay-per-view and FITE TV, with the Pre-show airing for free on YouTube. Below is the updated card:
